Introductions: Heart disease or heart failure
I have lots of questions. I have a bicuspid valve with mild stenosis and moderate leakage. I also have heart spasms . I have high bp. I am on the usual mess ramipril 10mg diltiazam for the spasms. Nitrate spray.indapamide 2.5mg aspirin lansoprazole and pain killers.
Why do I feel totally drained and in pain one day then the next OK. Sometimes I can't even lift my arms above my head. How fast will this progress. I've been ill for 6 /7 months and it is already feeling like a lifetime. Can you request a stress test so I know just how well my heart can cope. I only went for a walk with my daughter and I had to keep sitting down. What's the difference between a heart disease and heart failure. Is my leaking valve a disease and my spasms failure?
